Deal Between Olin and Dow Chemical to Spur New Business Opportunities for the Chlor – Alkali Market

The acquisition of Olin for Dow Chemical’s Chlorine business is expected to accelerate the chlor alkali market growth in the forthcoming years. For instance, Olin acquired large parts of Dow Chemical’s chlorine business for $5bn. Under the deal, Olin now owns Dow Chemical’s US Chlor-Alkali and Vinyl, Chlorinated organics, and global epoxy businesses.

Furthermore, the plans of AkzoNobel to upgrade the Rotterdam Chlor-alkali plant is likely to encourage the growth of the market in the forthcoming years. For instance, In July 2018, AkzoNobel planned to upgrade its Rotterdam chlor-alkali plant and include a new production line due to an increase in demand for chlorine and caustic soda.

The plant currently produces 630,000 tons/year of chlorine. Also, the surge in construction activities is expected to fuel demand for chlor alkali in the forthcoming years. Moreover, the growing requirement for the establishment of water treatment plants in chemical industries due to regulations by the government is expected to boost the chlor alkali market trends in the foreseeable future.

However, increasing regulations imposed by the government authorities beacause of environmental concerns is expected to dampen the growth of the market in the forthcoming years.
